Defective or damaged products can cause serious injuries to consumers. It is important to understand what you need to do if you are injured by a purchased product. First, we will look at what constitutes a product defect claim. There are three distinct types of product defects that will affect any claim for compensation.
Design defects are present from the outset and result in an unintentional outcome which may cause injury or damage to property. An example of a design defect may include cell phone chargers that overheat and explode during expected use. If you have been injured by a purchased product while using it as intended, the injury may be a result of a design defect.
If a product is designed to work as intended, defects may still occur during the manufacturing process. Examples of a manufacturing defect may include parts that have been measured incorrectly, causing them to jam. If this type of defect were to affect an accelerator or brakes in a car, it could result in a serious accident and injuries.
If you were injured by a purchased product due to inadequate or poorly written warnings, the provider of the product may be liable for your injuries. In the case of overheating chargers, the event may occur due to an expected result of leaving the charger plugged in for an extended period of time. If adequate warning is not provided, it may result in consumers being injured by a purchased product.
If you have been injured by a purchased product, you may have the right to seek legal recourse.
